HIMYM Exclusive: Anna Camp Replaces Ellie Kemper as Wedding Guest from Hell

anna camp how i met your motherRobin and Barney are making a slight tweak to their wedding guest list.

True Blood‘s Anna Camp has RSVP’d for How I Met Your Mother‘s highly anticipated nuptials playing a character originally earmarked for The Office‘s Ellie Kemper, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The super-busy Camp assumes the role of Cassie, one of the most attractive, available, and — as Ted discovers — unfortunate guests at big event.

Kemper, whose initial casting was reported by TVLine back in July, had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict.

Camp is set to appear in one episode, but, given the wedding’s season-long structure, it’s possible she could return.

HIMYM‘s farewell season kicks off Sept. 23.

    We’re is Ellie Kemper next???

  2. Alan says:

    thats a shame ellie kemper is hilarious and the show could do with someone like her around after the laughless season 8; that being said anna camp is brilliant so i dont doubt she will do a fantastic job.

  3. aa says:

    Dang Anna Camp, you’re everywhere. I love it.

  4. Patrick Maloney says:

    She is getting too big for her britches. I believe that because of her popularity True Blood decided to flesh out her character, and totally ruined Sarah Newlin, who I loved in the second season.

  5. Mark says:

    I think its because Ellie is going to become a recurring role in The Mindy Project. Anna Camp’s role was diminished in TMP, so it makes sense

  6. Ben says:

    Great for Anna Camp. Love her.

    I just realized (i’m a little slow, i know) that with the longest wedding in mankind history, we will not have a lot of scenes taking place at McLaren’s (or maybe in flashback). That king of sucks.
    It’s like a whole season of Friends without the Central Perks…

    Nothing against Ellie Kemper, but the show traded up. Anna Camp is fantastic.

  8. Philip says:

    I wonder if Kemper will show up later in the season at some point. Maybe she”ll get another role.

  9. curiousopeter says:

    Or could it be that Brenda Forever is finally being picked up? That would be awesome.

    • scooby says:

      It hasn’t been. NBC didn’t pick it up and there’s no reason to think anybody else did. If she’s got a recurring role on The Mindy Project this season, that’s an indication that it’s for sure dead.

    awww ellie kemper woulda been awesome, but i will gladly accept anna camp in her stead! especially if ellie is getting screen time on the mindy project… i think we can all agree there are going to be fireworks… maybe literally considering ellie’s character…. YIKES!

    Wow…..her acting isn’t that great but she’s funny at least she’ll be wrecking havoc some place else

  12. Jake says:

    I love Ellie Kemper but YES!! more Anna the better!

  13. Mikael says:

    I love Anna Camp!!! I’m glad she’ll be on HIMYM for a bit. I liked how last season had Penny from Happy Endings on an episode. I wish she could’ve been in more.

    Stopped watching HIMM last year, but I may just watch the episode Anna’s in.
